2021 marked the long-awaited return of car week, after 202o’s COVID cancellation. We did not know what to expect this year as far as crowds and participation. As we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to see so many people out – the crowd was just as big as the previous year, if not bigger. It seems staying at home made us all realize what we appreciate and value most – our cars and our communities.
It was great to be back this year! We showed not one but two cars – the fabulously restored 1979 Lamborghini LP400S Lowbody Countach, (featured at the Quail Motorsport Gathering), as well as the 1967 ISO Grifo GL350 which was quite literally in as close-to-perfect condition as possible. The competition at Pebble Beach in the Iso class was fierce, including the Iso Grifo prototype A3L having undergone one extensive restoration, which proved hard to beat. On this day we were very happy to receive 2nd place in the Iso class.
The Rame Colorado Lamborghini was definitely a star at the Quail, with large crowds swarming it all day. I really love that show, as it is a lot of fun to see the super cars that attend. Our little LP 400S (being one of the very early Countachs) almost seemed to be reunited with Lamborghini’s newest Countach prototype. It was like seeing father and son – but for me the ’79 is definitely where my dollar would go.
